The traditional Spanish luthier method for gluing classical guitar tops is to use a series of clamping springs. (see pictures). Summit Tools has designed an improved version of the springs providing optimal pressure in the vertical direction. This specially treated wire spring has a geometric design and a diameter of 4mm. Overall dimensions are approx 165 x 120mm with a weight of 35g.
In situation when a large and long surface has to be glued before the glue starts drying, the solution are presented spring clamps.
Easier than you think, you need a good preparation phase , especially for repair jobs we recommend a dry test – no glue applied, try the process, see eventual weak spots.
With SUMMIT® Fast Spring Gluing Clamps gluing tops or backs is fast and accurate, with maximal control. Efficiency pays off the costs, with first repair.
The method accelerates the working proceeding and gives you more spare time.
